Filmmaker Nupur Asthana, the director of "Bewakofiyaan", says finding a producer for her films was not a cakewalk.
"My journey has certainly not been easy. I have struggled a lot to find producers for my films. As a newcomer everyone faces this problem, but I am thankful to Yash Raj Films (YRF), who believed in me," Asthana told IANS.
It was the prestigious YRF that gave her a chance to direct her maiden film -- 2011 romantic comedy "Mujhse Fraaandship Karoge" and her second film "Bewakofiyaan" too has been produced by the same production house.
"Mujhse Fraaandship Karoge" opened to a lukewarm response at the box office and even "Bewakofiyaan", which hit the screens Friday, managed to earn Rs.4.74 crore in the first weekend.
She said: "Sonam is very intelligent. She is a kind of a person who reads a lot. I couldn't think of anyone else for 'Bewakofiyaan'."
